From Verdant Tea

Master Zhang is proud of the biodiversity of his tea fields, encouraging many varietals to grow side by side. His Huang Jin Gui grows above Daping village, fed by sweet mountain spring water. This unique varietal is full of big osmanthus floral notes and a striking sweet sticky rice flavor. The leaves open up quickly yielding a much bigger profile than Tieguanyin.

Tried this this morning – good but not my absolute favorite! This is very floral. I don’t really taste much of anything else.

I remember doing several gongfu sessions with this tea back in July or thereabouts, but apparently never posted a tasting note/review. I was unable to find drafts of my session notes, but did discover a numerical rating of 82 that I had scrawled in a notebook. I recall this tea displaying pleasant cream, osmanthus, jasmine, and citrus aromas and flavors with hints of leaf vegetables and minerals in the later infusions. I tend to not be a huge fan of Huang Jin Gui, as I tend to find it pleasant, yet somewhat two-dimensional, but I apparently rather liked this one.

P.S. I finally managed to write a short tasting note. Aren’t you all proud of me?

The TotM write-up describes this as bergamot, toasted rice & lime zest; very different from the write-up on their website. I have to say I’m not getting toasted rice or citrus, certainly not like I was getting from the Da Dan.

The osmanthus is here, for sure, there.
